Scrapbooking...

One of the reasons I love scrapbooking is that it's such a great project to do with friends or family. After a few weeks of crafting by myself (except for little Rosalind's company), yesterday my friend Candace and I got together.

While the girls played we pulled out our pictures and got busy. It was such fun getting to chat, share ideas and give opinions while creating a few pages.

And, this week I finished three pages...which I took to be a good sign. ;)

Though I love working with pictures of Rosalind I needed break, so decided do a page of her Uncle Steve and beautiful, soon-to-be Aunt Jenny. We can hardly wait 'til next weekend!

After seeing a page of my sister Crystal's that used the "torn and stitched" design, it quickly became one of my favorite. It's so easy-- just tear the top page and place coordinating paper behind, then stitch with DMC floss (you don't even have to stitch, but I think it's prettier that way).

I love the way you can use it to dress up a page and make it either classy or cute, elegant or just fun.


Here the design is again with a cool picture Joshua took while in Russia, only this time with tiny stitches.

Both of them are beautiful! I really like the second one and the colors you used. Not only smart, but talented too. Hopefully some of it will rub off on me - you need to come over more!

That IS a great idea...how lovely! It's fun to see you using the flowers you got from Hobby Lobby. They dress it up so nicely. We just might pull out the scrapbooking stuff today...it's been ages :).

You're an amazing homemaker!

Love you!

I love the other one too! I love how you stitched the X's with DMC floss. And the picture of them walking is one of my favorite.
I forgot to tell you how much i love the paper on the other one.;)

Love you!
